Law360 Names Crowell & Moring’s Rebecca Baden Chaney to “Rising Stars” of Transportation List

Washington – July 13, 2021: Crowell & Moring LLP partner Rebecca Baden Chaney was one of three lawyers in the U.S. named to Law360’s 2021 list of “Rising Stars” in the transportation category. The award series recognizes lawyers under the age of 40 for their outstanding career accomplishments.  

Chaney serves as co-chair of Crowell & Moring’s Transportation Practice, which was named Law360’sTransportation Practice Group of the Year” in 2020. Law360 calls Chaney a “proven litigator and regulator advisor” in its feature profile about her work for clients in automotive, autonomous and electric vehicle, and micromobility product development.

Law360 cited Chaney’s extensive litigation experience, including a recent win for U.S.-based Dana Inc., a Tier 1 auto parts supplier, in a “high-stakes warranty and product defect dispute with German parts manufacturer Freudenberg Group.” Additionally, Law360 reported that Chaney was part of the Crowell & Moring team that successfully defended a major automotive manufacturer “in what was the first proposed nationwide class action against automakers over purportedly hackable cars.”

Chaney is now working with Crowell & Moring’s Transportation Practice co-chair Scott L. Winkelman to innovate how the firm serves clients that are leading the transportation revolution. “As transportation companies increasingly embrace emerging technology and the industry forges ahead in developing electric, self-driving or autonomous vehicles, or advanced mobility services, there will be plenty for practitioners like Chaney to grapple with as they help clients navigate the new landscape,” Law360 reported.

“These developing technologies, as well enhanced accessibility of all modes of transportation, are going to reshape this industry over the next 10 years,” Chaney told Law360. "One of the elements of my practice that I like is helping my clients to advance their businesses through legal strategies," she said.

The article also highlighted one of Chaney’s proudest moments as an attorney, in a pro bono case for an American mother who fought to keep her three children in the country in a dispute that crossed international borders.
